Golf Journalist & Reporter Jimmy Roberts, author of “Breaking The Slump”


Sportscaster Jimmy Roberts talks about his book “Breaking The Slump – How Great Players Survived Their Darkest Moments in Golf– and What You Can Learn From Them”. Jimmy, who was just coming off of back surgery 2 days earlier, and only home from the hospital for a few hours, provides background on his reporting for Wide World of Sports, ESPN, and NBC golf coverage. He shares how he got intimate stories from some the of the greatest golfers of our generation on how they dealt with adversity of being in, and getting out of a slump. Everyone has a story, but there are few reporters who can get people to expose the intimate and sometime painful nature of adversity the way Jimmy can. He shares stories from Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Dan Jansen, Hal Sutton, David Duval, Davis Love III.  He also offers great quotes and lessons learned from writing the book.
